Valance Plus

Complementary privacy and glare protection


Sun and rain protection from above is effective but not always enough. The low-lying sun in the evenings or in autumn and winter in particular can cause unpleasant dazzling. And sometimes you simply want to be just by yourselves, protected from prying eyes. Which is why we provided solutions that offer you reliable protection from all sides.

The Valance Plus can be optionally integrated into the front profile, which is the awning’s front protection. It is elegantly integrated into the overall awning design there. The vertical shading can be controlled by a gear handle or conveniently at the touch of a button using the same hand transmitter that operates your awning.


The patented Opti-Flow-System to support the fabric roller bearing (only with awnings with motor drive) ensures that the front profile closes reliably and that the fabric is perfectly positioned, even with large widths.

Valance Plus: a summary of your benefits.

  • Optional for the Opal, Semina Life and the Plaza Viva awnings.
  • Glare and privacy protection up to a maximum valance height of 2.1m.
  • Plaza Viva: Valance Plus only possible with gear drive.
  • Folding arm awnings: motor drive as standard, gear drive possible (only recommended with small constructions).
  • Extends to any length.
  • Fabric in numerous high-quality patterns and different materials to choose from.

Heating Systems

You extend your precious time on the patio with the Tempura and Tempura Quadra heating systems. They can be mounted almost anywhere, are easy to retrofit and generate pleasant warmth. The infrared rays can be felt as soon as the system is switched on. The heater is available in a round version as well as the Tempura Quadra with square design.


You are not just protecting your wallet with the infrared technology. In comparison to the other heating technology, the heat can be felt instantly.


Infrared technology: cost-effective and pleasant

The operating costs of the Tempura/Tempura Quadra are just £0.33 per hour (at an electricity price of £0.21 per kWh). The operating costs for standard heating systems, for instance with gas, are significantly higher.

In comparison to electrical quartz heaters, the infrared heating technology only warms up the skin and not the air in between.

Resulting in maximum heat emitted straight after they are switched on.

Tempura/Tempura Quadra: a summary of your benefits:

  • Instant heat without any delay thanks to infrared technology.

Radio/hard wired control and weather sensors: modules for more comfort and security

We offer different technologies to operate its awnings etc. conveniently. Several products are also available from Weinor with classic gear handle operation. However, it is much more convenient to control the products by motor.


There are two options for how to control the drive: hard wired or via a radio receiver. With the hard wired solution the command is sent to a wall switch via the connection/power lead. The radio version manages without a lead for the control commands and sends the signals to the receiver using radio waves. Both technologies allow for the use of sensors that reliably protect your product from the weather and damage.

One Device for Everything – 

Would you like to control your patio lighting, heating system or awning at the press of a button. The BiConnect or Somfy system allows you to do just that. An easy to operate hand transmitter with or without display even sends the interference-free radio signal through metal facades and thick insulating layers thanks to routing technology. You can even operate every element of your awning on your patio or terrace using RTS or io-homecontrol from Somfy.
